That and "The private sector is doing fine" will be played over and over again into the election.

Just imagine if the liberal media actually reported ALL of Obama's gaffes! I think his popularity would "necessarily plummet".

Well, the media can't report all his gaffes because they are the propaganda wing of the DNC and Obama 2012.

Fortunately, we have the internet and talk radio to disseminate the truth.

Read my lips had such an impact because Bush broke a huge promise of his prior campaign, namely not raising taxes.

People remember Bush making this statement. As for Obama's statements regardless of how many commercials there are I don't see either of Obama's statements having the same staying power as "read my lips".

Obama saying:

"You didn't build that"

"The private sector is doing fine"


Is something that will be remembered as part of Obama's campaign and it is part of history. Like it or not.

I agree that these were unforced errors and I am sure he does regretting saying both things.


I also think with how divided our attention is I am not sure if these statements or similar ones will have the same resonance that the old ones had.

Personally, I cannot really remember any memorable lines from Clinton (96) through W, other than "Lockbox" (which is probably more due to that SNL sketch).

But who knows.
